Book Presentation: Health Holistic: Self-Help with Medical Cannabis in Latin America

[Translate to English:]

Tuesday, 2.8.2022, 19:00, Book presentation in the City Hall Festival Hall (Wolfsberg)

In the context of the lecture "Health holistically considered: Human Rights and Ethics for Integrative Medicine", Dr. Karin Brunner, a lawyer and ethicist from Wolfsberg, will present her latest book "Mamá Cultiva: Self-Help in Latin America with Medical Cannabis" on August 2 in the Town Hall Festival Hall (beginning at 7 p.m.).

The book was written as part of Brunner's research in the master's program in applied ethics at the University of Graz. "Mamá Cultiva" is a movement of mothers of seriously ill children who have found great help through the self-cultivation of cannabis and the self-production of cannabis oil. The resulting conflicts with state institutions are great. At the same time, these people find enormous support from an organization that provides medical and legal assistance to those affected, teaches how to make the medicine in courses, and promotes research and international cooperation.

All of these conflict issues are related to human rights and ethical issues in medicine in Brunner's book - who has lived mostly in South America with her daughter for years.
According to Karin Brunner, "The book aims to show a new way in which the different medical disciplines should work together for the benefit of people. Cannabis and this movement are meant to serve as an example of this need to move toward integrative medicine."
